“Dos Instalaciones” present two strong and complex installations with a vibrant spatial presence. Stemming from different political, historical and sentimental contexts, each work highlights a crisis of a failing idea of modernism and the consequences therefore, we have to face nowadays. They remind us of an urgency, fragility and a lack of balance.

The exhibition features a video art piece created by Alia Farid as a commission for the Sharjah biennial. To capture the piece, the artist travelled hundreds of kilometres from the tip of the Arabian peninsula all the way to the Iranian Island of Qeshm during the celebration of Nowruz Sayadeen, the “Fisherman’s new year”. On this day all fishing activities —a symbol of the village’s livelihood— stop as a tribute to nature.
